In a recent Instagram post, hiplife singer Mzbel (born Belinda Nana Ekua Amoah) has responded to critics of her choice in political party.
In the past few days, Mzbel has received immense bashing on social media for her endorsement of President Mahama as flag bearer for the impending general elections.
She finally broke her silence on the issue, describing certain news reports concerning her endorsement as “false” and the attack on her person “a shame”. She also stressed that while she accepted divergent opinion on some of her utterances, it is wrong to peddle falsehood on some news wbsites just to increase traffic
Read the full Instagram statement below:
It is a shame to see people insult, ridicule and attack my personality just because I was bold enough to voice out my political opinion to endorse H.E. President John Dramani Mahama.
Are these not the same hypocrites who preach about peace and political participation? Why rain insults on others because they disagree with your political views?
Aside the insults and ‘name-calling’, there is also a fabricated story on some websites with the caption “Nana Addo is not sexy at all, and will not win my vote –Mzbel”. …This is not only false but very sad to see trivial minds who call themselves journalists use falsehood and misleading quotes just to drive traffic to their irrelevant sites. I have not and will never attack other people’s personality because of their political stands.
I don’t have a problem if you disagree with my choice and political opinion, but Instead of taking the time to insult, say false things and / or misquote me, you should rather focus on sharing your views, declaring your stand and respecting others’ political decisions.
It is a disgrace to our nation if we continue to act in such manner and I say; Enough Is Enough!
